31-05-2019

       

There are countless studies, research papers and surveys that revolve around automated driving – we started with a selection of some of the most relevant and informative works. This is for the community and by the community: Let’s build it up and make it the largest collection of relevant studies on automated driving on the web! 

 

 

 

AUTONOMY DELIVERS: AN ONCOMING REVOLUTION IN THE MOVEMENT OF GOODS

 

Author: KPMG, Nov 2018

 

This study predicts that the arrival of autonomous delivery will lead to “a profoundly new delivery ecosystem” by drastically reducing delivery prices. Vehicle miles traveled for deliveries will more than triple, while the number of consumer shopping trips will essentially half by 2040.

MEASURING AUTOMATED VEHICLE SAFETY: FORGING A FRAMEWORK

 

Authors: Laura Fraade-Blanar, Marjory S. Blumenthal, James M. Anderson and Nidhi Kalra, Oct 2018

 

This report concludes that no standard definition of safety exists in regard to autonomous vehicles (AVs). The authors consider how to define safety for AVs, how to measure it and how to communicate what is learned or understood about AVs.

EVOLUTION OF MOBILITY: AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES

 

Author: Cox Automotive, Aug 2018

 

While many consumers agree that new technology makes better drivers, this year’s fatal crashes left their mark: 68% of respondents would feel uncomfortable in a fully automated vehicle, a survey by Cox Automotive, a service provider for car dealers and part of the Atlanta-based conglomerate Cox Enterprises, found.

THE NEW AUTOMOBILITY: LYFT, UBER AND THE FUTURE OF AMERICAN CITIES

 

Author: Schaller Consulting, Aug 2018

 

This report finds that 60 percent of app-based rides draw people away from using public transportation, biking or walking. It concludes that without public policy intervention, big American cities are likely to be overwhelmed with more automobility, more traffic and less transit.

AUTONOMES FAHREN: AKTUELLER STAND, POTENTIALE UND AUSWIRKUNGSANALYSE

 

Authors: Dr. Klaus Esser and Dr. Judith Kurte, Jul 2018

 

This report by the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) takes a detailed look on the effects autonomous driving will have on the German economy. It predicts an annual cost reduction of 8.3 billion Euros and a reduction of carbion dioxide emissions by more than 6 billion tons (Study in German).

RESHAPING URBAN MOBILITY WITH AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES: LESSONS FROM THE CITY OF BOSTON

 

Author: World Economic Forum and The Boston Consulting Group, Jun 2018

 

This extensive report summarizes findings from a three-year collaboration between the World Economic Forum and BCG to explore how autonomous vehicles could reshape the future of urban mobility. Findings include the effects that shared autonomous vehicles will have on the number of vehicles, congestion and parking.

AUTONOMES FAHREN UND VERNETZTE MOBILITÄT

 

Author: VdTÜV & Bitkom, Apr 2018

 

This study (in German) provides interesting insights into the opinion of German consumers on a variety of topics: hopes and fears connected to the technology, desired use cases and the role of data privacy and security.

EXPERIMENTAL VALIDATION OF CONNECTED AUTOMATED VEHICLE DESIGN AMONG HUMAN-DRIVEN VEHICLES

 

Authors: Jin I. Ge, Sergei S. Avedisov, Chaozhe R. He, Wubing B. Qin, Mehdi Sadeghpour and Gábor Orosz

 

Automated driving is still a niche technology, but don’t worry. Only a few automated vehicles may be enough to significantly reduce traffic jams as they buffer human acceleration and braking behavior.

NON-LINE-OF-SIGHT IMAGING WITH PARTIAL OCCLUDERS AND SURFACE NORMALS

 

Authors: Felix Heide, Matthew O'Toole, Kai Zang, David Lindell, Steven Diamond and Gordon Wetzstein, Apr 2018

 

Under adverse conditions, human drivers often struggle to identify objects ahead of them. Researchers at Stanford University are now developing LIDAR technology to enable automated cars to even see what lies in waiting just around the bend.

THE MALICIOUS USE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: FORECASTING, PREVENTION, AND MITIGATION

 

Authors: Miles Brundage, Shahar Avin, Jack Clark, Helen Toner et al., Feb 2018

 

Artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities are growing at an unprecedented rate. This report surveys the landscape of potential security threats from malicious uses of artificial intelligence technologies, and proposes ways to better forecast, prevent, and mitigate these threats.

THE 4D LINT MODEL OF FUNCTION ALLOCATION: SPATIAL-TEMPORAL ARRANGEMENT AND LEVELS OF AUTOMATION

 

Authors: Christopher D. D. Cabrall, Thomas B. Sheridan, Thomas Prevot, Joost C. F. de Winter and Riender Happee, Jan 2018

 

This study proposes an an extended taxonomy for the levels of automation using additional dimensions: location (from local to remote), identity (between human and computer), number of agents (degree of centralization of control), as well as adaptive optimization over Time. (The full study is only accessible as a paid version.)

SELF-DRIVING CARS STILL TROUBLE MANY AMERICANS

 

Authors: Reuters / Ipsos, Jan 2018

 

Men are more comfortable with self-driving cars than women, according to this poll. While the poll results only consist of one slide, they're nonetheless quite telling.
